NOT READY WHEN OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS by Tom Brennan
Before the season, you would have figured if one of the starting 5 went down, Rafael Montero would slot right in.
Could anyone have imagined, though, that when Harvey became that guy to go on the DL, Montero would have, in his last 8 outings, allowed a ghastly 41 earned runs in 36 innings? What on earth has happened to poor Raffie?
7.20 ERA this season...time to try something else. Bullpen in Vegas for Montero? A breather in AA?
Hey, and that guy Michael Fulmer is outpitching the world (9-2, 2.11). At least we have a starting All Star OF in Cespedes in return.
Have a great day....train pulling in.
